System Performance Improvement Briefs


Date Published: July 2017


The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) developed seven System Performance Measures to help communities gauge their progress toward the goal of ending homelessness. Each Continuum of Care (CoC) is expected to use these measures to evaluate how well homeless systems are functioning and where improvements are necessary. These two System Performance Improvement briefs highlight different aspects to help CoCs better understand and improve their homeless system.

Data Quality and Analysis for System Performance Improvement gives key steps to analyzing System Performance Measures results and troubleshooting data quality issues known to influence performance results. Target Audience: HMIS Leads and Sys Admins

Strategies for System Performance Improvement offers guidance on analyzing and interpreting performance data and identifying high-impact strategies for improving performance year-round. Target Audience: CoCs and Providers
